Employee perceptions of the fairness and accuracy of a performance evaluation system were examined by means of a questionnaire administered to all exempt managerial and professional employees of a large manufacturing organization. Primary (N = 355) and hold-out (N = 356) samples were identified, and a forward stepwise multiple regression analysis was performed on the primary sample. Cross-validation indicated that a 5-variable linear composite accounted for 29% of the variance in the dependent variable. Frequency of evaluation, identification of goals to eliminate weaknesses, and supervisor knowledge of a subordinate's level of performance and job duties were significantly related to perceptions of fairness and accuracy of performance evaluation.
